Oceans will part.

I'm going to a baptism Sunday, I met the lady and her daughter at Bible study group so it will be interesting.
My vicar still hasn't got back to me about my Baptism yet, hope he does soon.
Going to Toddler Praise this afternoon, a different vicar runs it I didnt know if I should mention the baptism to her?
Anyone involved in more than one church? Does it matter?
Hi HappyHome!

I love Hillsong, what a great song...thanks for sharing.

I'm sorry, but I don't know what a vicar is.

You attend multiple churches? If so, is there a particular reason?

Do not be afraid, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart on understanding this and on humbling yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days...
Daniel 10:12-13

Scripture tells us amazing things about an amazing man named Daniel. He served God faithfully when it was easy, and he served Him faithfully when it was not. He and his friends stood out from their peers as being brilliant, exceptional servants and were placed in positions of honor and authority. It should have been a piece of cake for Daniel to get a prayer through to Heaven, right? After all, he stood as a shining example of what God expected from His people. He should have had a ďmicrowave prayer lifeĒ. Say a prayer, wait a few seconds, and presto! Thereís your answered prayer right in front of you. Right?

Wrong!

Daniel 10 reveals a terrifying event in Danielís life. God pulled back the curtains of Heaven and revealed a vision to Daniel that no one else was permitted to see. The men who were with him were overcome with such fear that they ran away and hid--and they didnít even see the vision. Daniel did not eat for three weeks while he sought God for answers. Prayer after prayer was offered, yet no answer came. He must have sought God with such fervency, yet the Heavens remained silent. Did God really hear his prayers?

21 days after the vision, Daniel had a visitor. An angel appeared to Daniel to encourage him. He told him that from the very first day Daniel uttered the first prayer about the vision, his words were heard. God had not been ignoring him. Rather, He had heard every word that Daniel offered. He saw every frustration. Counted every tear. The angel announced that he had come in response to those prayers and those tears that Daniel cried in humility and dedication, determined to pray until Heaven moved. The angel told Daniel of a war in the heavenly realm where battle was going on on his behalf, and that the warriors of God had prevailed.

Daniel kept praying.

Heavenly warriors kept fighting on Danielís behalf.

Victory was won.

Daniel was persistent in his prayer. He prayed the entire 21 days. What if Daniel stopped praying on day 20? What if he stopped praying on day 14 or day 3? What if Daniel let what he could see with his eyes determine what he believed in his heart? Would the outcome have been the same? I think not.

Donít give up the battle you wage against infertility. Who knows the victory God will bring into your life if youíll just stay in the fight? This may or may not mean that you should keep trying to conceive and push aside other options. What it does mean is, stay in the battle! Pray and seek God even on the days you canít hear His voice telling you what to do. Donít give up on His plan for your family. He may bring victory to you by blessing your womb with a baby. He may bring victory to you through the breath-taking miracle of adoption. Victory may be ushered into your heart on the wings of peace. He never runs out of options. He never runs out of ideas. Perhaps battle is being waged in the Heavenlies on your behalf right now.

However, the victory comes, just donít stop. Donít stop being faithful. Donít stop trusting. Donít stop praying. Donít stop asking God to bring children into your life.

Maybe, just maybe, today is your day 21.

-Beth Forbus

Hello ladies hope everyone is doing good. Last night I went to a church service with the f.i.a(faith in action) team & The evangelist spoke on not blaming God. It really hit home with me. There's been times TTC & not TTC that I have blamed him or asked him why? & it just stuck soo much it's not His fault He wants good things for us. It could be us hindering or something else it is never Gods will for us to suffer. It was a great message. But on top of that I got to see some people healed & prophesied over which is always an encouragement to my faith. I'm soo excited about what God is doing & what He's going to do. It's truly amazing

Awesome! Thanks for the update on the faith in action team.

That's what I have been struggling with lately, the "why's"....why did I miscarry? Why did I get pregnant at all if it wasn't going to go full term? Why do I have to wait so long? And so on and so on.

I know I won't ever understand, but I trust God and His plans for my family....so I will keep the faith and move forward

Aww Sarah I know God's got great things in store for you & the fact you're remaining strong with God through all of this is truly amazing. We all have our doubts sometimes & question God but He never loves us less because of it. Even when we're unfaithful He remains faithful. He never gives up on us! Thank you Jesus!

You're definitely in my prayers along with all the other wonderful ladies on this forum (:

I have been struggling lately with "What now?" I wouldn't necessarily call it struggling per say, just more like in a mental quandary. It's all in God's hands I know that with all certainty. I just don't have trying for a baby to occupy my thoughts and calendar anymore. This is the first month that we haven't been watching the calendar and it feels kind of strange. I guess after six years LTTTC and a one year NTNP/TTC it would become a habit.

What are y'all doing for Memorial Day? We are going to do some grilling out and hanging around the house. I am taking off Tuesday too so I can have a four day weekend.

Before I met my husband, Memorial Day was really just another day. I didn't know anyone personally who paid the ultimate price in the service. Now that my husband and I have been together for nearly 11 years, I have a completely different understanding for Memorial Day. My husband was deployed in 2005 to Iraq and some of his friends and acquaintances paid the ultimate price. We were at a hotel in the town he was MOB'd from changing over a lot of his paperwork before he went back. We turned on the TV and there were pictures of two men from his unit that had been killed that previous day. That was a very sad time. I am very blessed to say that my husband made it back safely (aside from his own IED incident that ended up disabling him).

Amanda ttc certainly does become a habit. I remember when we decided to take a break from it and just enjoy each other it took me about 3 months to really let go of it. Not that I wanted to keep up with everything, but it was hard to stop as it was all I really focused on for so long. I started making other plans to try and occupy time and take my mind away from it all and eventually I got there.

We aren't doing anything for memorial other than grilling and hanging around the house ourselves.

I think you develop a different perspective on memorial day when you know someone or see what really happens to our soldiers. I grew up in a military town and a good bit of my family is military. They've all been blessed to return home safely the ones that have been deployed at one point or another. Thank your husband for his service and his sacrifice please.

Hi HappyHome,

In what context are you referring to being involved in more then one church? I feel it's important to be open minded and to have knowledge on various aspects regarding God + church, however i believe one should be dedicated and give whole heartedly to one church at one given time. In order to create solid fellowship and a solid foundation within ones denomination. Sure it's fine to visit alternate churches but to attend more then one, perhaps i would ask why and the reasons for this.
